Carnegie Mellon University

Federal Relations

Carnegie Mellon's Office of Government Relations works with congressional offices and federal agencies to increase interactions between the university and its federal leaders.

The office's main goals at the federal level are to act as a resource for members of Congress and their staff on a variety of issues, to inform and influence relevant legislation, to identify new opportunities for the university to engage in federally-funded research and to heighten awareness of the importance and impact of Carnegie Mellon's research and education programs. 

We achieve these goals in a variety of ways. The government relations staff works closely with committee staff to provide expert information and testimony on legislative issues and to arrange for our faculty to brief members of Congress both during congressional hearings and in private and group meetings. In addition, the staff builds relationships between the federal government and the Pittsburgh region by bringing federal officials to campus for one-on-one demonstrations and meetings with the university's world-renowned researchers.  

Carnegie Mellon is a member of the Association of American Universities.
